The Very Secret Low-Down  
It has come to our attention that people might need some sort of introduction to our little corner of the Buffyverse, since we have made a few rather significant diversions from canon. So it is our pleasure to present you with this FAQ that will, hopefully, tell you everything you need to know about the Very Secret Diaries...on the Hellmouth!

What are the VSDs?

The Very Secret Diaries...on the Hellmouth! are a series of, well, diaries featuring the denizens of Sunnyhell. In English: they are the "true" confessions of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer characters, set during the third season. The format is borrowed (with permission) from Cassandra Claire's Very Secret Diaries of the Lord of the Rings characters.

Who writes this absurdity?
That would be visualthinker11
and myself. And visualthinker11 has made some banners/promo pics for the VSDs too, which you are welcome to check out!

Can we join this community?

Then what can we do?
You can watch this community! We are the only members of the community because we are the only people who will be posting, but we hope you will read (and review!).

Do these need to be read in order?
Not exactly, but we encourage you to at least begin with Angel's diary (Days of our Unlives) as it establishes the basic premise of the series's central diversion from canon: Angel spends his time apart from Buffy writing a soap opera. He calls it his "m.o." (magnum opus) and it's all very funny, so you should just read the diary. It's also important because we reference the m.o. fairly frequently in other diaries. They are all linked in order on the right side of this page, and they are also archived in our memories.

Who is Delilah?

You may have noticed, keen readers, that we keep mentioning a character who was not created by Joss Whedon! Delilah was, in fact, created by none other than our very own Angelus. She is one of the main characters in his m.o. (see above).

Will there be more diaries?

As of right now (April 2009), yes. But we have lives, so we cannot update as frequently as we would like to (or as we used to).

Did anybody actually ask these Frequently Asked Questions?
